Established in 1977, West Virginia Writers, Inc. is the largest nonprofit, all-volunteer, writers' resource and service organization serving literary interests in West Virginia.
We are founded on the fundamental principle that the written word is one of the most distinguishing characteristics of all human endeavors. Our aim is to expand and develop creative writing and professional opportunities for writers and to connect the state's writers with others in the literary community and the public at large.
WV Writers sponsors both an annual writers conference and an annual writing competition.
WV Writers 2016 Summer Conference has now come to a close. Please join us next year, June 9, 10, 11.
